Hunt underway for Knottingley pub arsonists

The hunt is underway for two men who torched a pub in Knottingley last night.

The perpetrators were wearing masks from the horror film 'Scream' during the attack at the The Bay Horse in Hill Top.

A number of customers who were inside the pub at the time were able to escape uninjured.

Mobile phone footage shows pub fire

Mobile phone footage taken by a bystander shows the height of the flames at the Bay Horse pub in Knottingley. Two men in 'Scream' masks burst into the pub last night and poured fuel around the building before setting it on fire.

The landlord of the Bay Horse told Calendar he only took over the pub last Monday. His wife and eight-year-old child were in the building when the arsonists struck.
